NBC’s Ann Curry: Iran Deal Means Potential Nobel Peace Prize for Kerry

Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Cycle,” in her reaction to the news of an agreement on the framework of a possible Iran nuclear program deal, NBC News international correspondent Ann Curry suggested a potential Nobel Peace Prize for Secretary of State John Kerry and his Iranian counterpart, Minister of Foreign Affairs Javad Zarif.

Curry said, “It is definitely an historic moment. It is rare to see nations who have for decades threatened each other with war step back from the brink and give peace a try. For Secretary of State Kerry, it is a momentous announcement. This is potentially going to be one of his greatest triumphs.”

She added, “Secretary Kerry has spent more time with him than even his counterparts who are among our closest allies. So this has been a major focus for his time in office. It will be a legacy. It’s a legacy moment for him. There is even some discussion that it is possible, depending on how this goes, whether or not it is finally signed at the end of June, beginning of July, and whether or not it is actually deemed an effective document, a good deal, that it could actually portend the possible nomination of not only Secretary Kerry but possibly even the Iranian Foreign Minister for a Nobel Peace Prize.”
